    its unlikely that you will find a Zenec branded card available from anywhere other than Zenec themselves. It is most probably just a standard card with one of their stickers anyway. Please upload a photo so that we can tell you which sort you have

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. The model is a ZENEC ZE-NC520. It seems the memory card supplied carrys all the maps of Europe, so even though a regular memory card will probably fit, will it be any use? I have tried emailing Zenec directly and they gave me a website to buy one from but this just links you back to the Zenec website, who don't sell them . Pulling my hair out!!!!

    I had the same problem when I bought my first Sat nav, but soon learnt that you buy a bigger capacity card then copy over the files from original. Most seem to use standard SD cards with a maximum size between 2GB and 4GB

    What is the reason for wanting a replacement card?

    Is it lost? Damaged? Or are you after newer maps?

    the members who posted the question no longer visit the forum, and this thread is 3 years old now. try searching for a card with the iGo8 mapping software.
    also you may be able to recover the deleted files on your sd card using one of various programs specialising in this

    I'm guessing you didn't back-up the card (Naviextras software has that functionality) before your problem?
    If not, I think you'll be stuffed as the card is registered \ restricted to the specific head unit it came with.
    Have you tried a file recovery program like https://www.piriform.com/recuva?
    If these options fail think your only option would be purchase of a new card or use a standalone sat nav.

    Hi
    You've now used up your 5 free posts so will have to pay your subscription fee (£10).
    If you've saved the file you may want to try a search in Windows Explorer for a .gpx extension (think that's the one Naviextra uses but can't be certain).
